sure you don't mean to say "30-31" ounces? it looks like that's what these weigh about is 30-31 ounces

Around the 25 ounces mark and 28 ounces is close by..no they do not make
forks that light anymore and there were some in near that 25 ounces mark..
as I have said as i am a bit of a light weight.My bike is currently 19.5 pounds


Ares Ax Forks are 31 ounces
Ares ST forks are 32.5 ounces
Autumn Zeros are 28.9 ounces
Far East Cycles Slimdoggies forks are 30.4 ounces
""     ""      ""    Turbo forks are 30.4 ounces


Etc etc...so let just say 28-32 ounces are the normal weight for forks these days!

At some point less weight is not good.The bike having some weight is good because it keeps it stable.You  are smoother that way.I believe 10 kg is the lighter a flatland bike should weight.
You tend to look spastic with a very light bike.

10kg is like 22 Lbs and I have no problems with my bike being
like 19.5 pounds and i am stable at that weight and not a spaz
as you state.Some like their bikes a little bit heavier and some
even lighter than my bike..18,17 16 or even 15lbs..6.8kg.


I think that it is however the weight feels good for you and there
are no standards for how much your bike weighs..really!

Agreed.  I prefer a lighter bike all else being equal....
